This looks similar to the problem I tried to fix in:

http://marc.info/?l=linux-mm&m=124140637722309&w=4

Miao pointed out that the patch needs more work to track hot plug of
nodes. I've not had time to get back to this.

Interestingly, on ia64, the top cpuset mems_allowed gets set to all
possible nodes, while on x86_64, it gets set to on-line nodes [or nodes
with memory]. Maybe this is a to support hot-plug?
